Pet rats are often misunderstood and even dismissed, but they can hold such a profound place in our hearts.
This set celebrates the magical little creatures that rats are - and the amazing companions they can be.
-----Specs & Physical Details-----
Both variations (buttons or magnets) measure 3.175cm (1.25") in diameter (from edge to edge).
The designs are protected by a thin, but resilient mylar layer which makes them water resistant. They can be readily cleaned with a damp cloth as needed. They are not waterproof (though personal experience has shown them to survive an accidental cycle through the washing machine...oops.)
The buttons have a metal pinback enclosure. They are durable and good quality.
The magnets have a strong ceramic magnet: they are not just for display, they really work. They can hold up to 6 thick pieces of printer paper! These strong magnets are not glued to the front, instead, they sit in a metal bracket that is machine pressed/crimped onto the front. As the magnet is not glued, some limited movement within the piece is possible - this will not affect use.
Items are packaged in a resealable bag that has an information card as a backing. This card includes information about the cause the items support - making these perfect gifts.
-----Information on the Cause-----
$1.50 from the sale of each set goes to the Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue.
Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue (OPRats) is a registered, non-profit organization working to raise awareness and share information about pet rats. They are involved in local rescue, fostering, and adopting. their mission is to encourage, educate and support rat-parents and potential rat-parents so that more rats can have happier, healthier lives.
-----Tips and Tidbits----
If putting a button on a bag for long term use, consider putting a glob of hot glue on the clasp. This will make it even less likely for the button to be lost as the pin won't be able to leave its cradle!
